Good evening, friends. It’s a—a great privilege to be back here in the house of the Lord, tonight, in the service, and still living on the—the manna from this morning, that our souls were so greatly blessed by His great Presence. And now, tonight, we are have a... starting on the subject of: The Breach Between The Seven Church Ages And The Seven Seals.

And I was just speaking, this afternoon, to a friend. And maybe, the Lord willing, sometime this summer, if He doesn’t take me Home, or—or, I get to come back, don’t go overseas or something, I would like to strike again at the seven last Trumpets, see. And it all bridges together. And—and then there’s the seven last Plagues in this. And it all blends right together, as we’ll see as we go along.

So, tonight, while we’re kind of getting quietened... I may be just a little lengthy tonight. With even... As soon as I get back here, now... All the preaching I done in Phoenix, I never one time even got hoarse, see. That’s right. And, oh, my, how hard I preached! And for, I believe, it was twenty-seven services, without getting hoarse. But it’s the climate here, you see. Just simply, it’s just bad right here, just a valley. It’s just a bad condition back here, and, of healthy, you know, what I mean, it’s—it’s—it’s bad. And any preacher has a... that speaks, has a bad throat, to begin with.

A—a doctor friend of mine looked into my throat, one time, to see what was wrong. Said, “Nothing.” Said, “You just got calluses on your vocal chords there.” Said, “That’s from preaching.” Well, I—I—I kind of like that, you know. That made me feel better, as long as it could be applied to preaching, you see. It would be all right, for the Kingdom of God.

Now, we might not be able to bear in our body the mark of the Je-... of Jesus Christ, like Paul did, from being beat. But we might bear our mark from preaching and giving our voice against the things that’s wrong. So, we’re thankful that we don’t have to be beat anymore, especially up to this time.

So we—we are...

How many in here has read What Time Is It, Sirs? Or, has heard it, you know, What Time Is It, Sirs? That’s bothered me quite a bit. If you haven’t, I wish, some way, if you could get to hear it, or some way. Kind of bothered me. I just wanted to drop this before starting the service. About—about a week or ten days ago, I was so disturbed. I just... I—I—I just didn’t, I wouldn’t take services or anything, because I—I didn’t know it. It seemed like it could be something that was bad, and I didn’t know just what it was. So I...

One early morning, I got up, to go up into Sabino Canyon. Which, from the house, is only about thirty-minutes drive to the... or forty, to the head of the Sabino Canyon, then there’s a road that runs thirty miles up into the mountain.

Strange country, up there. I can be here on the desert, where it’s eighty and ninety, right now, and in thirty minutes be in eight-foot of snow, see, on top of the mountain.

We was at Phoenix, just recently, where it was twenty something, twenty-eight degrees. They had the swimming pool heated, and people swimming. And about forty-minutes drive from there, it was forty below zero, at Flagstaff. See? That’s the difference from the up currents and the desert. And very healthy for asthmatics, and so forth.

But, now, I went up in the canyon, and I climbed way as high as I could go. And I—I—I asked the Lord, while sitting up in there, what all this meant, and so forth. I was kind of bothered, and didn’t know just what to do.

And so while I was praying; strange thing happened. I—I—I want to be honest. Now, I could have fallen asleep. It could have been like a trance, or it could have been a—a—a vision. I’m more or less inclined to believe that it was a vision. That, I had my hands out, saying, “Lord, what does this blast mean? And what does these seven Angels in a constellation of—of the pyramid, picking me up from off the ground and turning eastward, what does it mean?”

I was standing there, in prayer, and something happened. And, now, something fell in my hand. And I know, if you don’t understand spiritual things, it may seem very strange. But something struck in my hand. And, when I looked, it was a sword. And the handle was made of pearl, the prettiest pearl I ever seen. And the—the guard, you know, where... I guess it’s to keep your hands from being lanced, you know, while you’re... the—the people were dueling; was gold. And the saber’s blade wasn’t too long, but it was just razor sharp; and it was glistening silver. And it was the prettiest thing I ever seen. It just fit my hand exactly. And I was holding it. I said, “Isn’t that pretty!” I looked at it. And I thought, “But, you know, always afraid of a sword.” I was kind of glad that I lived out of the days that they used them, because I—I’m afraid of a knife. And so I—I thought, “What would I do with that?”

And while holding, in my hand, a Voice from somewhere said, “That is the King’s sword.” And then it left me.

Kein Übersetzungstext von BerFra vorhanden

Well, I—I wondered what it meant, “‘That is the King’s sword.’” And I thought, “If It would have said, ‘a king’s sword,’ it might have been that I would have understood it. But It said, ‘the King’s sword.’” So I may not have this right, but I thought, “There is only One, the King, that’s God. And His sword is This, ‘Sharper than a two-edged sword,’ see. ‘And ye abide in Me, and My Words... ’” See? And I—I thought...

In dueling, you see, and as I under-... I don’t understand one word of it, but, or one principle of dueling. But, the best of my understanding, the knife striking across. And then, finally, the—the swords, if they lock, the enemy and you lock the swords, like this, then it takes the strength of the man dueling. Because, see, his sword would be pointed to my heart, and mine to his, but they’re locked, as our knives striking each other. And then they strike, and then the swords come together. And the one that can shove the other one down, the sword is straight to the heart. So it takes...

Even though the sword be the Word, it takes the hand of strong faith to hold It there, to bring It to the heart of the enemy.

Now, not knowing these things, but just... All that I have received of Him, that I can tell, I have told you. So, that, you know, I believe it was... Wasn’t it our Lord said, all that He had received of the Father, that He had told, and withheld nothing? And—and so we want to do those things just as they come. Now, if you’ll be real wise, and pray, I’m sure you’ll understand something pretty soon, now, something that I hope is revealed.

Now, in this Book, let’s all turn now to the—the 5th chapter of the Book which is called The Revelation of Jesus Christ.

Now, tomorrow night is the First Seal. Which, the first four Seals are opened, by four horse riders, one on each Seal that strikes the earth. And then, perhaps, they will not be long, until after we pass about... Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, about Thursday. Then, I suppose, on the Sixth... and Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Seal, will probably be very lengthy. So, maybe it’ll give you a little time to catch up a little rest.

We aim to start the services here, I believe, at seven, in the week nights. And I’m to be on the platform at seven-thirty, exactly. And then that might let us out by midnight. So—so, I—I went an hour over, this morning. I didn’t mean that, I just... I don’t know when.

Because, I do not know what the first rider is. I do not know Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, or Seventh Seal. I, to this moment, I do not know. See? I’m just depending on Him.

So that’s why... trying this week, by the grace of God to help, believing that, if you understand deeply...

You know, in visions, you cannot reveal things until you are permitted to reveal. How many times have you all heard me say, “Go into a house, perhaps a hat be lying here. And this certain child, or so forth, will not be healed until that is laid over here.” I cannot tell them, or neither can I move it there. It’s got to be, move, in some other way. Somebody else has to take it and move it. And, everything in order, then it can be revealed.

So now be in prayer.

Now, just before we approach the Book, let’s talk to Him, with our heads bowed.

Lord Jesus, we are altogether insufficient. We would not try, by no means, to approach this sacred Book, in this most holy hour which souls hang in the destination of time, without asking, Lord, that, the only One that can reveal this Book, that He come forward now, blessing the feeble efforts of Thy servant’s. Bless the Word as It goes forth. May It go in the power of the Spirit. And may the spiritual ground of the... those who are hungering and thirsting to know righteousness and to know the will of God, may It fall in there and bring forth of Its kind. Grant it, Lord. All praise shall be Thine. May the hungry and the thirsty find food and drink, tonight, from the Word. We ask it in Jesus’ Name, of Whom the revelation is of. Amen.

Now, now we’re going to turn to the 5th chapter. Now, this is not the Seven Seals. It is the breach between the church ages and the Seven Seals. Now, there is also a 6th chapter of...

And there was a 4th chapter, rather, of Revelation, and, in that, it kind of revealed something that would take place after the Church going up. That, the Church goes up on the 3rd chapter of Revelation, and does not return until the 19th chapter of Revelation. See? Therefore, the Church misses the Tribulation. I know that’s contrary to—to pretty near every teacher I ever talked to. But I—I—I don’t mean to be disagreeable. I—I mean to be your brother, but I—I must teach just as I can see It. If I don’t, I can’t put It together, you see. And now, whether It goes up before the Tribulation or after the Tribulation, I want to go up with It. That’s the main thing.

So, those things we—we just are presuming, because, without education, I type. I look and see what is, or has been in the Old Testament, which is a type or a shadow of the New, then I have some idea what the New is. See? Like if... Noah went into the ark before the tribulation set in, a type; but even before Noah, see, went in the ark, Enoch went up, see, before anything happened. And Lot was called out of Sodom before one speck of the tribulation set in, of destruction; but Abraham was, all the time, out of it. See, types.

But now we will read the 1st verse. I’ll read the first two or three verses of it:

And I saw in the right hand of him that sat upon a throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?

And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under—neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look upon It. (What a Book!)

And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.

Now, you speak about unworthiness? “Not even worthy to look at It; no man, nowhere.”

And one of the elders said unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts,... in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

We will pause there for a few moments, from the reading of Revelation 5, down to the including the 7th verse.

This Seven-Seal Book is revealed at the time of the Seven Thunders of Revelation 10, now, if you’re marking it down. Let’s turn to Revelation 10, just a moment, so you’ll get an understanding before we get into it. Now, this is at the end time. For, listen:

...I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow... upon his head,...

If you notice, that’s Christ, see. Cause, He, in the Old Testament, was called the Angel of the Covenant. And He is directly coming to the Jews now, for the Church is finished. See? All right.

...and his face... as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

You remember that Angel in Revelation 1? Same thing. Angel is a “messenger.” And He’s the Messenger to Israel. See? The Church has been raptured, see, now, or fixing to be raptured. He comes for His Church.

Now watch.

And he had in his hand a little book open:...

Now, here, It was closed here and sealed; and here It’s open. It’s been opened. Since that time of the sealing, we’re getting into tonight, now the Book is open. “A little Book in His hand, in His... It was open. Oh, how the sun, as pillars... ” Wait just a minute. Let me start back here and read.

And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot upon the earth,

And he cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roar:...

We know He is the Lion of the tribe of Juda. Over here He’s the Lamb; but here He’s the Lion. See?

...and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.

Now, John was commissioned to write what he saw, so the apostle, and prophet, picked up his pen to write It.

And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

Now, that’s what we don’t know. That’s yet to be revealed. It’s not in Holy Script, what them Thunders say.

And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hands to heaven, (now listen)

And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created the heavens, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things... therein are, and... there should be time no longer:

Watch! Here is a verse I want to get to.

But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he has declared to his servants the prophets.

Now, see, the mystery of this Seven-Seal Book will be revealed at the sounding of the seventh church angel’s Message. See? “The seventh angel begins to sound,” and there is the Messages wrote out there, and we got It in tape and book form. Now, “At the beginning of the sounding of the Message, the mystery of God should be finished, see, at that time.” Now we will notice. The Book, of the mystery of God, is not revealed until the seventh angel’s Message is sounded.

Now, these points will be important in the Seals, I’m sure, ’cause It must, every bit, tie together.

Now, It’s wrote mysterious, because no man, nowhere, knows It. God alone, Jesus Christ, see.

Now, but is... It is a Book, a mysterious Book. It’s the Book of Redemption. We’ll get into that, in a little while. And now we know that this Book of Redemption will not be thoroughly understood; It’s probed at, through six church ages. But at the end, when the seventh angel begins to sound his mystery, he winds up all of the loose ends that these fellows probed at. And the mysteries comes down from God, as the Word of God, and reveals the entire revelation of God, then the Godhead and everything else is settled. All the mysteries, serpent’s seed, and whatever more, is to be revealed.

Now, you see, I’m just not making that up. That’s what... It’s THUS SAITH THE LORD. I’ll read It to you out of the Book, “The sounding of the seventh angel’s Message, the mystery of God should be finished, that’s been declared by His holy prophets,” that’s the prophets who has wrote the Word. At the sounding, of the seventh church age, the last church age, all the loose ends, that through these church ages has been probed at, will be wound up together.

And when the Seals are broke, and the mystery is revealed, down comes the Angel, the Messenger, Christ, setting His foot upon the land and upon the sea, with a rainbow over His head. Now, remember, this seventh angel is on earth at the time of this Coming.

Just as John was giving his message, the same time that Messiah come in the days. John knew he would see Him, because he was going to introduce Him.

And we realize that, in the Scriptures, over in Malachi 4, there is to be a one like John, an—an Elijah to whom the Word of God can come to. And he is to reveal, by the Holy Spirit, all the mysteries of God, and restore the Faith of the children back to the faith of the apostolic fathers, restore back all these mysteries that’s been probed at, through these denominational years. Now, that’s what the Word said. I’m just responsible for what It said. See? It’s—It’s written, is right. That’s what It is.

Now, we see that this Seven-Seal Book, now, is the mystery of redemption. It’s a Book of Redemption, from God.

Now, all the mysteries, at this time, should be finished at the sounding of this messenger. Now, here is the angel on earth; and “another” Angel, mighty Messenger, come down. See, this angel was an earthly angel, messenger; but here comes One down from Heaven, a rainbow covenant, see, only Christ it could be.

Just exactly like was in Revelation, 1st chapter, “Standing in the midst of the Seven Golden Candlesticks, with a rainbow, to look upon as jasper and sardius stone.”

And here He returns back, in the 10th chapter, after the coming time that all the mysteries is to be finished and the Seals are to be broke, and proclaiming that it’s, “Time is no more.” And He said, “When the seventh angel has begin to sound, then the mystery should be finished, and time for the Angel to appear.” We’re close, somewhere. Right.

Now notice.

The Seven Seals holds the mystery of the Book. Until we can see what those Seven Seals has sealed in, we’re only presuming them things. Because, as I’ve told you, this morning, upon my little Message this morning, of God hiding in simplicity. You see, we—we are... We are sure to miss the thing unless It is absolutely, genuinely revealed by the Holy Spirit, and vindicated the same. See? If the prophet rises and tells you that This is just That, and God don’t vindicate the same, forget it. See? But God, in every statement, in everything, has to vindicate It, to make It right. See? So, His children will watch those things, see, and be alert.

Kein Übersetzungstext von BerFra vorhanden

Notice.

Seven Seals on the Book, has the... These Seven Seals has the Book sealed. See? The Book is absolutely sealed. Do you see it? [Congregation says, “Amen.”] The Book is absolutely a sealed Book until the Seven Seals is broken. It is sealed up with Seven Seals. Now, that’s a different from the Seven Thunders. See? This is Seven Seals on the Book. And the Book will not, the Seals will not be released until the Message of the seventh angel. See? So we—we are presuming; but the genuine revelation of God will be made perfect in that sounding, vindicated Truth. Now, that’s exactly what the Word says, “The mystery should be finished at that time.”

And this Seven-Seal Book, remember, It was closed here, in Revelation the 5th chapter, and in Revelation the 10th chapter It is opened.

And now we’re going to see what the Book says about how It become open. And is not made known until the Lamb takes the Book, and breaks the Seals, and opens the Book. See? The Lamb has got to take the Book.

It’s hid. Now remember, “No man in Heaven, no man in earth,” pope, bishop, cardinal, state presbyter, or whoever he is, “can break them Seals, or reveal the Book, but the Lamb.” And we have probed, and presumed, and stumbled, and wondered, and—and that’s the reason we’re all in such a confusion.

But with the Divine promise that this Book of Redemption will be perfectly opened by the Lamb, and the Seals thereof will be loosed by the Lamb, in the last days in which we’re living now. And is not made known until the Lamb takes the Book and breaks the Seals. Because, remember, the Book was being holded in the hands of Him that sat upon the Throne. “And the Lamb comes to Him that sits upon the Throne, and takes the Book out of His right hand.” Takes the Book!

Oh, that’s deep. We’ll try to solve it out if we can, by the help of the Holy Spirit. Now we’re depending on Him. And we will see, later, it is at the end time, “When time has run out.”

No denominations has a right for interpretation of the Book. No man has a right to interpret It. It is the Lamb Who interprets It. And the Lamb is the One Who speaks It, and the Lamb makes the Word to be known, by vindicating and bringing the Word to Life. See? Exactly!

Notice. And is not revealed until...

This Book is not revealed until the church ages and denominational ages has run out, “and there is time no more.” See it? It’s only revealed after church ages and denominational ages has run out.

That’s the reason the thing is in such a scruple tonight. See, they pick up a little doctrine, and they run off here to one side, say, “This is It!” Another one picks up another doctrine, runs off this side, said, “This is It!” And each one builds a denomination under it, until we got hundreds of denominations. But still, in all of it, to see the confusion, the people are wondering, “What is Truth?” If that isn’t just the condition today!

Kein Übersetzungstext von BerFra vorhanden

But then He promises, that, “When that time has finished out, there will be the sounding of the seventh angel’s voice, and then the Book will be revealed, see, at that time.”

Now, don’t say, nobody, “Them people ain’t saved back there.”

But, the mysteries, that they couldn’t understand! How that God can be three and, yet, One! How that the Scripture can say, “Baptize in the Name of the Father, Son, Holy Ghost,” and turn around and say, “Baptize in the Name of Jesus.” See? Oh, so many things! How can Eve eat a apple and cause the—the wreckage of the whole world? See? How can these things be? But those mysteries are promised to be revealed in the end time.

It’s little, loose ends that... These great warriors has come on the scene, such as Irenaeus, and Martin, Saint Martin, and Polycarp, and the different ones, and Luther, and Wesley, and all of these. See? As how they have come and just lived long enough to—to kind of bring a light and shine it, but they left many things in—in darkness. Along come the Pentecostal Age, like the Lutheran Age, and they run out on limbs. But still, all right, don’t say they wasn’t right. They were. But there is loose ends left, that can’t be explained. But then in... Why? The Seals hasn’t been broke, to thoroughly reveal what these things are. See?

Kein Übersetzungstext von BerFra vorhanden

But then, in the last age, all these mysteries are to be solved and handed out. And the Seals are to be opened by the Lamb, and revealed to the Church, and then time is no more. See? How wonderful! Then, the Book, then, is a Book of Redemption. For, then It goes ahead...

And we’ll bring in, later on, how the hundred and forty-four thousand is brought in, and so forth. All right. That’s Jew.

Now, now, Paul. Let’s read a little bit. I get some of these Scriptures, and I think we ought to—to read Them. Now let’s all of us turn; Paul, in Ephesians 1.

Many of them I see are writing. They got their books and writing the Scriptures down, marking them in their Bible, for a chain. So, that’s—that’s fine. I like for you to do that, and then go home and study It. See? And—and if you study It, yourself, then you’ll—you’ll understand It better. See? Just study It, and ask God to help you to understand.

Now let’s read a—a Scripture I got written down here. Ephesians 1:13 and 14, now.

In whom we also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, and the gospel of your salvation: in whom... after that ye believed, ye were sealed with the holy Spirit of promise,

Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory. See?

Now, while we got the Scriptures open, let us... See, the Holy Spirit here, Itself, is a Seal. The Holy Spirit is a Seal. And a Seal signifies (what?) a finished work, the Holy Spirit being a Seal to the individual. And to that individual, when he receives the Holy Spirit, then his time of groaning is over, see, because it is a finished work.

Like, I used to work for the railroad company, and we’d load box cars with cans and different things from the canning factory. And, but, then, before that car could be sealed, the inspector come around, to see if that car was properly loaded. If not, [Brother Branham claps his hands together once.] the first time it rammed together with something, it’d scatter the stuff and break it, and—and the railroad company was responsible. And that inspector would test everything, to see if it was properly in place. If it wasn’t, he condemned the car. Then we had to do it all over again, until the inspector was satisfied. And then when the inspector is satisfied, he shuts the door. The inspector shuts the door. And the inspector places a seal upon it, and then no one can break this seal until it reaches its destination.

That’s what the Holy Spirit has been doing. See? He goes and He inspects. That’s the reason you can’t have these things and... You say, “I spoke in tongues, and I shouted, and I danced in the Spirit.” That don’t have nothing to do with It. See? The Holy Spirit inspects that person until He’s thoroughly satisfied and knows that they are.

Then, they are sealed unto their Eternal destination. There is not nothing can ever break that Seal. The Bible... You’re putting your Scripture down. Ephesians 4:30, said, “Grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed until the Day of your Redemption.” Hold that word, “redemption,” see. Until the day that the Book of Redemption has been revealed, and the Redeemer comes to claim His possession! Nothing can do it. See? “Don’t grieve It.” Stay... Do things that pleases God, for the Book is sealed, now, and you are sealed. The Holy Spirit, Itself, is the Seal.

Seal signifies... Now, this is words I got from the dictionary: "Seal" signifies a “finished work.” And when the Seventh Seal is broken, the mystery of God that’s sealed in these mysterious Seals is finished. Until the day that Seal is broke, and then it’s revealed what’s on the inside of It.

If the man is wondering what’s in that box car, say, “There is supposed to be such-and-such. There is supposed to be.” He is presuming. But when the seal is broken, and the door is open, we see into it then and see exactly what’s in there.

You see it? And that’ll only be done at the end time.

Another thing a Seal signifies, is “ownership.” See, the Seal has a mark on It, shows ownership. When you are bought by the Blood of Jesus Christ, and sealed by the Holy Ghost, you no longer belong to the world or anything pertaining to the world. You are owned by God.

Another thing, is, a Seal is a “security.” Seal means you are secured. Now, you that don’t believe in Eternal security, I don’t know, see. But now, but, a Seal signifies security to its destination. Woe unto that guy that would try to break that Seal! And the Holy Spirit Seal cannot be broken.

You all have heard me say that people said, “The devil made me do this.” No, no, the devil didn’t do it. You just wasn’t sealed in. Cause, when you are sealed in, he is sealed out. Yeah. See?

Now, you went out to him. Uh-huh. He couldn’t get into you, because the only way to get into you is come through the same process that you have. He would have to be saved, sanctified, and filled with the Holy Ghost, then he’d be your brother. So, you see, so he—he didn’t do it. No, no. You just went to the borderline and come back, lusting for the things of the world. You never went all the way over into Canaan, you see, across Jordan, the death to self. See?

Now notice, now, this Book is sealed. And—and you are sealed, with the Book, until the Day of Redemption.

Again, in Romans 8:22 and 23. Let’s get that, and we’ll give this background, then I think we’ll understand It a little better if each person reads It for themselves. I’m giving you a few Scriptures here, so we can—we can look upon Them, and while the hour is still young. Now, 8, Romans 8:22, to begin.

For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

Oh, my! Oh, my! Don’t that make us old folks feel good? It ought to make us all feel good, waiting for this hour. We understand this will take place at the first resurrection. See? Nature is groaning. We are groaning. Everything is groaning, because we realize there is something not right. And the only way you can groan, and wait for it, is because there has been new Life come in here, that speaks of a new World.

Like the wife here, not long ago, we went over here to the supermarket. And I said, “We found a strange thing; a lady had on a dress.” And it was so strange, see. They, they’re... Nearly all of them don’t wear dresses, you see. And, somehow, they’re forgetful; they go out without them. So then we... They’re wilfully forgetful.

And so, then, Meda said to me, she said, “Bill, why is that?” she said.

“Oh,” I said, “it’s just the spirit of the nation.” And I said, “When you go to Germany, they have a certain spirit. Go to Finland, they have a national spirit. You come to America, we have a national spirit.”

Our national spirit is frolic, jokes. You know why? We were founded upon the Doctrine of the apostles. We were founding upon leadership of great men, like Washington, Lincoln. But we have moved off of that foundation, and we know that we’ve got it coming. We know that a atomic bomb has got our name wrote on it. We know that slavery lays ahead of us. No need of fooling yourself.

It reminds me, like some of these comedians, going down and—and telling these jokes, and carrying on, and women carrying on the way they do, and men, together. It just reminds me of a little boy going through the graveyard, whistling, trying to make hisself believe he’s not scared. Sure, he’s scared. See? He ain’t fooling nobody. That’s why he’s whistling. See? He is trying to say he’s not scared, but he is. And that’s what’s the matter, today.

But, oh, what a blessed hope for the believer, that’s lifting up hands, for our redemption is drawing nigh. When he sees these things appearing, it’s a great time for the believer.

Now, these things, that, the groaning in our bodies. Did you ever notice a tree, how it struggles for life? It wants to live. And you notice an animal, how in—in death, how it struggles. You notice a human being, everything, nature is groaning. We, in ourselves, are groaning. See? We know there is something wrong. We see, from these verses, that something has been lost, both to man and earth. Creation of all type, has lost something, for we see from this inspired Word that it’s groaning for some reason. You, you don’t groan unless there’s a reason for it.

As I spoke of the ink, it’s a reason.

That’s the way in praying for the sick; until you can find the cause! I know the cure, but I’ve got to find the cause. That’s why the visions are so needed and prominent; it reveals the secret of the heart, tells the person where you made your mistake, and what to do. See? No matter how much medicine you take, or how much oil you pour on their heads, or how loud anyone would scream over you; if there is something wrong, he’ll lay right there. I said “he,” that’s Satan.

See, today, as advanced we are, in medicine, we still don’t know nothing about these things. You say, “He’s got cancer.” Well, that ain’t nothing. That, that—that just names what it is. That names the medical name, cancer. That don’t have anything to do with what it is. That’s the name that we call it. We just call it the name, cancer. But, really, what it is, break it down, it’s a devil.

Now, we say “sin.” We just call it sin. Break it down. What is sin? A lot of people say, “Drinking, committing adultery.” No, no. That’s the attributes of sin. See? That’s what sin causes, see. But real sin is unbelief. That’s where it’s—that’s where it’s named and called out. If you are a believer, you don’t do those things. But no matter how holy you try to make yourself, and how religious you try to be; if you do those things, you’re an unbeliever. That’s Scriptural.

Now, something is lost, and it’s groaning. It’s trying to get back, to be back to its original condition.

Would you imagine someone falling from the earth, down into a deep pit somewhere, and was struggling, climbing, pulling? They must, by some means, get out of this pit. They’re not in their original state. And, frantically, they’re screaming. They’re clawing the walls, making a noise, or doing some way. They’re—they’re groaning because that they want to get back to their original state.

That’s why a person, that struck with disease, aches and pains. One time they wasn’t that way, but they are groaning. Why? They’re not right. There is something wrong. And they’re groaning, and trying to get back to where they was when they had health.

And when nature and peoples, as the Bible said, “are groaning,” it shows there is something, that they’re not in their ought-to-be condition. They have fallen from somewhere.

Now, we don’t need anybody to interpret that for us. See? For, of course, we know it was Eternal Life, they had fallen from. And they lost their claims on Eternal Life, by the fall of Adam and Eve, who fell from Eternal Life, to death, in the garden of Eden, and brought all nature, under them, to death.

A tree never died, before Adam. An animal wouldn’t die, before Adam. And there’s only one thing that cannot die, and that’s God, because He’s Eternal. And that’s the only way we can ever keep from dying, we have to have Eternal Life in us, to be sons and daughters of God.

But when we died, as I said in the Message this morning, to sin, we sold out our birthrights and crossed this chasm. Now we’re beyond the reach of God, on this other side of the chasm.

Now, of course, when Adam fell, to death, he brought death upon all creation.

Now, he was given free moral agency. It was given to them just as we, so to make a choice. Now, Adam and Eve, in the beginning, there was a tree of right and wrong before them, and that same tree sets before each and—and every one of us. See, God isn’t doing for Adam or for Eve... You say, “Well, it’s their fault.” No, not now it isn’t. It’s your fault. You can’t place it on Adam now. You got to place it on yourself, because right and wrong is set before you. We’re on the same basis as Adam and Eve.

But, you see, when we are redeemed, we no more want our own choice, but we want His choice. See? See?

Now, when a man has been redeemed, he don’t care anymore for scholarship. He don’t care for anymore of the things of the world, the wisdom of the world. He don’t want no choice at all. Christ has been his choice, and that’s all of it. He is redeemed. He just no more wants to lead himself. He don’t want nobody talk him into where to go and what to do. He just waits and finds out the choice of his Maker. See? Then he goes in the Name of his Maker, when the Maker tells him to go. See?

But man seeking wisdom, wants to find, “Well, this parish is pretty good; but they pay me more over yonder, so I’ll go over there.” See? See, wisdom.

Now, when Adam sinned, by heeding his wife’s reasoning instead of holding to God’s Word, that’s what made Adam sin. His wife reasoned with Satan, and then produced the product to Adam, and Adam turned loose the Word and sold out.

He lost, also, his inheritance, when he lost his fellowship and right to Life. Remember, “The day you eat thereof, that day you die.” And when he lost his Life, he also lost his inheritance in life, because he had completely supreme control of the earth. He was a god of the earth. God is the God of the universe, everywhere. But His son had this earth under his own control. He could speak, he could name, he could say, he could stop nature, he could do anything he wanted to. See? But, when he did that, he lost his inheritance.

Now, Adam could say, “Let this mountain, here, be moved over there,” and it would do it. Adam could say, “Let this tree, here, be plucked up and planted over here,” it would do it. See? For he had complete, supreme control, as a minor god under God our Father, because he was a son of God.

Now couldn’t we stop here just a minute and get a real sermon! See? Oh! Then, if the Blood has cleansed it back, what about now? See? Look what that Son of God, the second Adam, did. See? And said, “The works that I do, shall you also.” See?

Adam lost his inheritance, the earth. Now, it passed from his hand to the one he sold out to, Satan. He sold his faith in God, to Satan’s reasonings. Therefore, his Eternal Life, his right to the Tree of Life, his right to the earth, belonged to him, and he forfeited every bit to the hands of Satan. He passed it from his hand to Satan. Therefore, now, it has been, it returned and has been polluted. And the seed of Adam has destroyed the inheritance that Adam should have had, that’s the earth. That’s right, see, the seed of Adam.

I stopped, the other day, at down at Tucson where I live. And I was talking to someone, up on top of the mountain, looking down. I said, “What do you think! That, three hundred years ago, the old Papago come down through there on his travois, with his squaw and children sitting on the back, rode out there somewhere and lived peacefully. There was no adultery, no whiskey, no gambling, no nothing among them. They lived clean. And the coyote come down the—the wash, each night, through Tucson here, howling. And the mesquite and cactus bloomed, around on the banks. And Jehovah looked upon it and must have smiled. But the white man come that way, and what has he done? He has dug up the cactus. He has polluted the country, with beer cans and whiskey bottles. He has ruined the morals of the nation. The only way he could whip the Indian was kill out his food, the buffalo.”

When I was reading at Tombstone, the other day, in the—the museum, and saw the pictures of Geronimo. And many of you might think that Geronimo was a renegade. To me, he was a genuine American. He was only fighting for that which was right, that God had given him: a land, and a nation, and a place to live. I don’t blame him. And when those white soldiers come in there and, by force, taken over the land, and killing them out like a bunch of flies. And there was the original picture of Geronimo’s medical headquarters, or his hospital. It was two or three blankets over a piece of mesquite. And them wounded, real, genuine Americans, Indians, fighting for their God-given rights. And there, Geronimo with a baby of his own, on the hips, standing there looking upon his own warriors, bleeding, dying, with no penicillin or nothing, no way to help them; genuine, God-given Americans! Then call him a renegade? I call him a gentleman.

Cochise would have never surrendered. He was an old man. But the American Army, them all dressed in there, and they went out there and would kill the buffalo. They run excursions out, and Sharpe invented the buffalo rifle, and they went out there and say, “Oh, I had a good day today,” shooting, off the side of a—of a boxcar, or a passenger car. Say, “I killed forty today.” Forty buffaloes, which would have kept the whole tribe of Indians, two years or more. What did they do with them? Let them lay on the desert. Their old carrion bloated the lands, and stunk the lands, the coyotes eat.

When the Indian killed the buffalo, there was a religious ceremony. He took his hoofs, saved them to make pans. His meat they eat, even to the meat on the entrail. They taken all of his meat and hung it up and dried it. His hide was dried, and they made clothing and tents. There wasn’t nothing...

But, when the white man come in, the renegade is the white man. He is the rascal. And he come in and killed off those buffaloes, and starved those Indians out.

Any genuine man would fight for his God-given rights. It’s a stain on the American flag, what they did to the American Indian. After all, it belonged to him.

What would you think if Japa-... Japan, or—or some, Russia would come in, and say, “Get out of here! Get back out here,” and—and do us and our children the way we did those Indians? But, remember, we’ve sowed, and now we’re going to reap. That’s the law of God, you know. There’s a planting time, and then a harvest time. I think that it’s too bad. Yes, sir.

Now what happened? The polluted seed of Adam has polluted and absolutely destroyed the land. Do you know the Bible says that? And because that he has did this, the polluted seed of Adam, God will destroy them. You want to read that? Let’s see. I got it wrote down here. Turn to Revelation, the 11th chapter, and we’ll find out. Get over in Revelation, the 11th chapter, and we’ll see what God said about them who is destroying the earth. The 11th chapter, and let’s take the 18th verse, I believe it is, 11:18. Here we are.

And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come (now watch God’s wrath), and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and to them that fear thy name, both small and great; and should destroy—destroy them which destroy the earth.

What they going to do? Reap what they sowed. Sure. When you see sin running in the streets! How many, on this Sunday night, how many adulteries will be committed in this city tonight? How many women will break her marriage vow, in this little hole in the ground here, called Jeffersonville? How many abortion cases you think are recorded in Chicago, in thirty days? In between twenty-five and thirty thousand per month, besides the ones that’s not turned in. How much whiskey is drank in the city of Chicago? What do you think happens in Los Angeles in one night? How many times has the Lord’s Name been taken in vain, in the city of Jeffersonville today? Is it better now, or was it better when George Rogers Clark came down on the raft? You see, we have absolutely polluted the earth with our filth, and God will destroy those that destroys the world. God said so.

All right, waiting. What’s it doing? In the hands of God, waiting for redemption claims. He made a way of redemption, He made a way back, and someday the Redeemer is to take it back. You see where we’re getting to now? We’ll watch this Fellow sitting upon the Throne. All right.

Waiting for redemption claims, its redemption.

What is this Book of Redemption, this title deed, abstract title deed? “You say, ‘abstract’?” What does an abstract mean? Means it’s searched all the way back to its beginning. Like that little—like that little drop of ink this morning, when it struck that bleach, it went all the way back. And when sin has been confessed and fallen into the Blood of Jesus Christ, oh, my, it gives an abstract, right straight back to the Creator again. You become a son of God.

Adam could not meet the requirements of redemption. After he found he lost it, he had sinned and he had separated himself from God, was on this side of the chasm, so he could not redeem it. He just couldn’t do it, ’cause he—he needed redemption, hisself, so he could not do it.

But God’s law received a substitute. Now, what if God had not offered to take a substitute? But love constrained Him to do it. That, man was without a way back, and there’s no way for him to get back. He was gone. But the grace of God met this Kinsman Redeemer in the Person of Jesus Christ. Law required it.
